A Ghost Story Dirigida por David Lowery
When Will Oldham’s character launches into his monologue, he’s probably not exactly sure where he’ll be going with it, but a hunch in his gut guides him to a desolate conclusion. Lowery’s story rolls out as if he were thinking out loud, and though it also eventually wanders out to the very infinitude of the universe, he ends up in far less desperate straits.

A Ghost Story is not so much the wisdom of a life lived as it is dinner party conversation for intellects of a certain age. But it is also a work of cinematic imagination from an up-and-comer who wants to build on the very Malick-isms that have turned so many moviegoers off. The middle passage, where time slips between cuts and pans, is beautifully detailed.

More idiosyncratic but inertly contrived is A Ghost Story, David Lowery’s take on how space is inhabited by the past. While it found many ardent fans, it never transcends quirk for anything more profound in its fashioning of an afterlife of lonely, sheet-wearing ghosts, as much as its inventive visual jokes charm.

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film A Ghost Story

    At once a metaphorical examination of a relationship in collapse. The man can't come to terms with the potential loss of his other, so he clings, as a literal ghost, to the memory of a place & to the 'grief' of the one who left him. This is fine, but it's the way the film expands into something deeper, more existential, that makes it a masterwork. The hallucinatory death-dream of past, present & future is profound.

  • Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film A Ghost Story

    Is this wave of recent psuedo-arty horror tripe a greater waste of time and more exasperating than bullshit MU films? I have reached the point that I am undecided. Arthouse horror is one of my favorite subgenres, but when it feels fake... it's just fucking painful, man. If Marvel’s infinite brain-raping torture, this shit is a gun to the head, blow-my-brains-out so I sunbathe in hell type of atrocity.

  • Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film A Ghost Story

    Beyond time, beyond life & death, beyond love... there comes a film that shows these things as an art form and makes us think about it after the film ends. Very well-made & interesting, also reminds me of the great classic arthouse films I've seen because of its style & storytelling. Like a life-changing experience...

  • Zac Weber's rating of the film A Ghost Story

    A meditation on what remains after sudden and unexpected tragedy. I was haunted by the idea of this lingering memory watching over the life you once thought you’d share. David Lowery often uses long shots that force the viewer to dwell on any potential parallels to their own life, and this is his best project to date. Even the 1.33:1 aspect ratio evokes a sense of being boxed in by physical space. Bravo.

  • Andhika Eka Buana's rating of the film A Ghost Story

    On paper, this is the kind of film that If I proposed it as my final project as a film major, everybody would burst out laughing. So kudos to Lowery for 1) having the guts to make this, 2) making it anything but ridiculous, and 3) instead turning this weird concept to a film which might possibly become my favorite film of the year.

  • Duncan Gray's rating of the film A Ghost Story

    Movies may be the closest thing to ghosts that exist, and some of the most ghostly FX predate not only digital cinema, but talkies. So credit David Lowery for an analog spirit. Its philosophical insight is on par with the post-grad cosmic rap a character gives at a shindig—i.e., it's dinner party conversation. But the emotions work, with passages of slip-sliding time that mean as much for the living as the dead.

  • C҉ă҉t҉ă҉l҉i҉n҉'s rating of the film A Ghost Story

    You see, in the first world it doesn't really matter that much if there's a lot of nonsense. In the third world it's a different matter, they really need serious intellectuals, and if they were to rant over-inflated postmodern absurdities like in Western Europe, USA and Japan then they would be gone. Movies like this exist only in places where MEANING can be overwritten by coffee breaks. People are bored, we get it.

  • smndvdcl's rating of the film A Ghost Story

    Bonnie Prince Billy (Will Oldham) as the prognosticator just about stole the whole movie. I have a soft spot for film concepts like this and Lowery uses the extended metaphor with a stylistic grace reminiscent of the deliberate patience of Malick and 'slow cinema'. It leaves so many haunting enigmas on the questionable spirituality of existence.
